This is due to the runway upgrade by the National Airport Corporation (NAC) which began work on February 24.
 
"NAC has advised that these runway restrictions are expected to continue until June 16, but between April 27 and June 16 the works will involve further shortening of the runway, hence it will be restricted only to the operation of 36-seat DHC-8-202 aircraft.
 
"Air Niugini is expected to resume Fokker jet operations from June 17, however Tokua airport will be closed only for all Sunday flights from June 17 to August 5 to allow for continuous runway works.
 
"Air Niugini regrets any inconvenience this may cause, however the situation is beyond the airline's control," the company said.
